Lots of dark wood rooms and hallways in this pub in the City. This was Dr. Johnson's local, and Charles Dickens also drank here. There has been a pub on this site since 1538.
Absolutely beautiful Victorian pub in the Holburn area
This pub is on the south bank of the Thames near the Globe Theatre and is so old that it was REbuilt in 1676! Very cozy pub with several fireplaces.
Centuries old pub in Hampstead Heath with tons of history and the alleged ghost of the legendary highwayman Dick Turpin
Great, fun pub in Covent Garden. In the summer there is a huge crowd out front enjoying their drinks.
It's a little misleading because it's not actually near the Cutty Sark ship in Greenwich, but still a great pub!
As the name would suggest, right across the street from the British Museum. It's a cozy little pub with a Victorian feel, though there has been a pub on the site since the early 1700s.
Right across from the Blackfriars tube stop, this pub is shaped in a wedge (a la the Flatiron building). Lots of over-the-top bronze monk decor on the inside, and in nice weather the crowd spills out to the courtyard in the front.
Great neighborhood pub not far from the Notting Hill Gate tube
Good pub to stop by on the way to/from Harrod's or Harvey Nicks
Another great pub in Greenwich, this one is easier to find than the Cutty Sark
This is half quaint pub/ half Shelock Holmes museum. Really cute pub if a little touristy.
Another absolutely gorgeous Victorian pub
This is probably the most ornate of all the pubs I've been to. Lots of mirrors and glass make this a very sparkly place for a pint! There are several pubs by the same name in central London so make sure you find the right one.
Great neighborhood pub in Fitzrovia, which is near Soho and Bloomsbury. This is a great place to hang out for the whole night, and there are outside tables when the weather is nice.
Old coaching inn on the south bank of the Thames not far from London Bridge. Good to combine on a pub crawl with The Anchor.
Cute little place that is a nice stop on a Hampstead Heath pub crawl
Friendly Victorian pub in Bloomsbury near the Russel Square tube
Super, super touristy spot in Covent Garden. That being said, it does have some old charm and is a great place to people-watch.
Okay, so this pub might not be historic, but Harrod's is. If you're there anyway and don't have time to go to one of the other pubs on the list, check this out. It's in the basement of Harrod's, and the drinks are pricey, but the food isn't bad and it does have a nice cozy yet ornate decor.
